FileVault2 Encryption fails on macOS High Sierra

0 users found this article helpful



Domain mobile account can no longer be used to force FileVault2 encryption on Macs running High Sierra. This limitation was implemented with one of recent macOS High Sierra updates. More information can be found in KB article from Apple Support


There is no possibility to bypass this limitation when using Parallels Mac Management hence starting from macOS High Sierra only local administrator accounts should be used to enable FileVault2 encryption on the Mac running macOS High Sierra
